    • Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti Mix

      Make your own delicious Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti Mix, an Italian inspired twice baked cookie great with tea or coffee.

      You'll Need:
      3/4 cup dried cranberries or cherries
      3/4 cup shelled green pistachios
      2 cups all purpose unbleached flour
      1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
      2 teaspoon baking powder
      2/3 cup sugar*

      Measure each item into layers if giving as a jar gift, cone gift, etc, or measure into a large ziploc bag or vacuum seal bag & seal.

      (Recipe fits in a 1 Quart Jar)

      Recipe Tag Directions:
      Combine the following until well blended:
      1 Pkg Mix
      1/3 cup butter
      2 eggs

      Divide into 2 loaves on cookie sheet, chilling if necessary to make dough easier to handle. Each loaf should be about 9 inches long and 2 inches wide.

      Bake at 375F for 25-30 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on sheet for 1 hour.

      Cut each loaf diagonally into 1/2 inch thick slices using a serrated (bread) knife. Place slices on an ungreased cookie sheet.

      Bake at 325F for 8 minutes, then turn over and bake for 8-10 minutes more or until dry and crisp. Transfer to wire rack to cool.

      Makes 32 cookies.

      Our "new" Pet Bed

      Well, I'm not sure if this counts because it's more repurposing than making something... but what the heck!
